As many of you read here, I posted the other day about an article I read called "Will babies with Down syndrome slowly disappear?" One man left a comment on that article that cut me to the heart. (You can read his comment in my original post.) I originally intended to offer a lengthy rebuttal to "Modern Sound", in defense of my Lily, and all children and adults who arrived in life guilty of nothing but an extra chromosome.
I put out a request to friends on BabyCenter and Facebook and blogland for photos...and as these amazing pictures began to flood my inbox, I realized there was not much I could say that would speak as eloquently or as profoundly as the faces of our beautiful children.
So "Modern Sound"...if you're reading, know this....
Our children are not suffering.
Our children are not a burden.
Our children are worthy of life and worthy of our love, and we are forever thankful for the incredible joy we know every single day....because of them.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words...
Here's a hundred thousand for you.
